hollywood, big government, big journalism, and big peace, p, e, a, c, e. he became a big player what is come to be called the new media including work as editor on "the drudge report" website and yes the "huffington post". bull buckley didn't dwell in the past but he believed we should and could learn from it. he was fascinated by the rise of the new media and encouraged conservatives to become involved in it as he had in the old media. he didn't live to see it come to full fruition and andrew left us too soon for him to become a greater influence than he already has. a tribute to him that his web sites and work endure. it is my pleasure as the winner of last year's william f. buckley, jr., award to present this year's award posthumously to andrew breitbart. may he rest in peace.

this can happen if the make of government on november 7 is the same as it is today? >> no. i think will happen for another reason. i think first of all when people figure out there's a big chunk of change, and second of all when you have the debate between the people trying to protect entitlement, and the people trying to kill energy, who are you betting on? >> in california they're saying just allow the winter fuel blend is not early is going to save, make as much as 50 cents a gallon, they've been paying over $5 a gallon in california, and california has created -- [inaudible] >> california is america if we don't change. that's a scary thought. you can see the future, just look to california. it should scare everybody in america. no one would want to go the. part of the answer of california is to stop trying to be the federal government. they can save a lot of money if they pull back from the own agencies and own regulations. but i do think we have this opportunity, to tom's point on this leg of the school got it all fits on a growth like if you will. because i think that we woul
government, but hesitated to make decisions and were forced to rely upon local and tribal militias of varying degrees of loyalty. in late spring, the police were allowed to return to work to help with traffic, but were limited to that only. fighting between militias was common. militias separated -- they appeared to be disintegrating into freelance criminal operations. targeted attacks against westerners were increasing. in june, the ambassador received a threat on facebook with a public announcement he would like to run around the embassy compound in tripoli. when i arrived in february, three teams were on the ground. ambassador katz was forced -- lost one of his teams. the ambassador struggled with renewing the sst beyond april 5. that is ambassador stevens. the second msd team was withdrawn after the departure of critz. restricted from performing security work only and limited only to train local guard force members in july. the remaining msd was withdrawn at the same time the sst was terminated. the security in benghazi was a struggle and remained a struggle throughout my time there. the
ahead and respond first and then answer the question, what is the worst thing the federal government can do? boswell: tom talks a lot about it and certainty but a lot happens to create that uncertainty and we need to stop those things and get something done. we need and farm bill and energy credit. yes i think we ought to be clear. gives supported the lose tax breaks and i did not because you know, it seems to me like we have been involved in these long, long wars going on and i can imagine what the soldiers feel like. i know what i would feel like coming back from vietnam. now we have to pay for it. that would not be a very good thing and i think that's very bad. >> moderator: how do you respond to that? latham: in the house of representatives we have passed an extension of the current tax loss and i think it's interesting commerce and boswell says that he opposed the bush taxes and he just voted for a budget that extended the bush tax cuts. but, excuse me, please. boswell: the tax is obviously, we need to extend those. you know we have this sequestration which causes rescission and spe
people to show the same type of thing had would be required to get government assistance and get on an airplane and try government building and is actually a common sense move to ensure we maintain the integrity -- >> the basic right of an american isn't to fly, is it? >> i don't understand your question. >> your basic american right in certain things is to be able to vote. >> i don't understand how -- entering a government building, getting government benefits, things like that, it is a common sense thing to say hey, if you are going to come in to a voting booth to claim you are somebody, we would like to actually use a common sense -- >> it is a -- to get an i.d. and certain cases considered to be a poll tax. poll tax is unconstitutional. is a poll tax constitutional or unconstitutional? >> poll tax would be. i don't understand -- that's like saying to drive on a road is a poll tax -- you have to get a license to enter a government building there is a poll tax because you have to show a photo i.d. to get government been pits a poll tax because you have to show i.d. to get those
, i'm not one who votes for something then writes the government to ask them to send us money. i did not request any stimulus money. >> report came out again today in the "ap" a pete of the "wall street journal" article for a couple years ago where you had asked for stimulus money for your district. is that report accurate? >> i never asked for stimulus. i don't recall -- i haven't seen this report so i really can't comment on it. i oppose the stimulus, because it doesn't work. it didn't work. look at just the dlfr $90. in stimulus. $90 billion in green pork to campaign contributors and special interest groups. >> i love my friend here. i'm not allowed to show letters, but go on our website, he sent me two letters saying, by the way, can you send me some stimulus money for companies here in the state of wisconsin? we sent millions of dollars. you know why he said -- >> you did ask for stimulus money. correct correct? >> sure he did. >> on two occasions we advocated your constituents applying for grants. >> i love that. this is such a bad program and he writes department of energy a l
objects to. there is no role for the government to be sort of people by race. >> the university of texas of austin's has what? guest: they say the supreme court has endorsed education and diversity as a compelling goal for the government and an exception to the usual rule that the government should not be classified people by race. it is true, and a 5-4 decision, the supreme court said that, but the key vote, sandra day o'connor, has retired, replaced by a more conservative judge, samuel alito, so in that they give us a new result. >> what is the result of this, who will hear it, who will decide? guest: only eight justices will decide. elena kagan is reduced from oregon and the case as a former u.s. solicitor general. it is a good bet the four more conservative justices, if not to strike an entirely, will limit the use of race. the three more liberal ones will go the other way. as usual, anthony kennedy will hold the deciding vote. on the one hand, he has said there have been some positive things about the importance of diversity. on the other hand, he has never voted to make sure that a
, kentucky, east of here tomorrow. this is a fundamental discussion about the role of government. mitt romney in that debate the other week used the phrase "trickle-down government," which is a very clever and very condescending formulation of what government is. the government programs that we have, that include social security and medicare and medicaid and education and so forth come from the ground up. they're what people want, they're what people need, they're what people voted for. they're part of the fabric of american life. they're not trickle-down anything. and what the president has to do and what joe biden has to do tomorrow night is to confront that notion. joe biden has to not only defend the president and attack paul ryan for his libertarian ideas, joe biden has to defend social security and medicare and the very idea of the usefulness and the importance of government in sharing responsibility in america, a big, heavy lift for joe biden tomorrow night. >> it's a heavy lift, howard, i agree, but it's also right in his wheelhouse. everyone in this country knows his middle class bac
as a government? do we want to do that in civil society? do we want to be taking a wway e medicare promise to people in any generation when you say to a person when they reach their 80s, go out, get on a bus and go find yourself an insurance company that's going to insure your health at this point. do we really want to do those kinds of things? and was it right to deal ideologically with the auto industry when we had to interrupt the normal processes of the market and do something extraordinary? romney said, no, let it happen. let them eat cake. obama said, no, i'm going to take this risk. he was right. the ideological issues are the very issues where i think what you can do tonight, it's a political term in philadelphia, you middle the guy. you take this guy, paul ryan, and middle him. force him to choose between his hard right ideology and positions he's taken over the years, stick to those positions or slink over to the romney positions that loosey-goosey thing in the position in the middle where he flips around and slips around so much he can't tell where he stands. will ryan be ryan t
businesses based on the government. >> fewer than 500 employees. >> exactly. you can fit all the ceos of firms in madison square garden. the rest of the businesses in the population of south carolina. you are talking roughly 18,000 people who run businesses more than 500 people. the millions of businesses that generally are having a very hard time. so, it's not a matter of bigness or smallness. ultimately, it should be those businesses that help sustain communities versus those that prey on them. >> congressman, it strikes me this has become a thing that is political can't. you are never going to get up in the well of the house and say i proudly bring before today this bill is that going to stick it to small businesses. i mean, but if you say this bill is going to be great for small businesses whether or not it's the case, you give it this kind of legitimacy. >> you are right on both counts, i'm not going to stick it to small businesses. but, you know, it's not a term in search of definition. it's a term to avoid definition. that's the deal. everybody wants to be quote, for business.
the real internet is very dissatisfying to the government of iran. there is all sorts of stuff on the internet the iranian mullahs do not like so they've been busy closing off bits of internet to the iranian public. you can't use google. now you can't use youtube. you can't use specific sites where the government doesn't like what you can read there or what you can see there. they've been doing that forever. kind of playing with the internet. iran's government is apparently getting tired of managing the increasingly complex patchwork of things they want to block the people in their country from seeing online and so instead they have a genius idea. they are suggesting they may just close off access to the real internet all together and instead build themselves their own internal government approved internet. just for their own country. it's not really an internet. it is more like an iran-ternet. they will build their own separate but equal. ridiculous right? but you can understand that sort of controlling dictatorial impulse here that gives rise to that sort of ridiculousness. i
to our foreign assistance to create incentives for good governance, free enterprise and greater trade in the middle east and beyond. i'll rally our friends and allies to match our generosity with theirs. >> this will come as a surprise to our allies. mitt romney took his cues from foreign aid from rick perry. >> one of the things we have to do with our foreign aid commitments, the ongoing foreign aid commitments, you start everything at zero. a new strategy is to keep things deliberately vague. this week marks the 11th year of the war in afghanistan. romney took heat for not mentioning afghanistan during his convention speech. but the new mitt romney finally has a position on the war. >> in afghanistan i'll pursue a real and successful transition to afghan security forces by the end of 2014. >> that just happens to be the exact same position of the current president of the united states. this guy named barack obama. romney didn't offer any additional specifics, so it's hard to tell if he has really any disagreement with the president over afghanistan. the same goes for iran. >> i'll p
it widen the? ? yes, it will, because women know that they don't want government in their bedroom.>? yes, it will, because women know that they don't want government in their bedroom.>? yes, it will, because women know that they don't want government in their bedroom. ? yes, it will, because women know that they don't want government in their bedroom.yes, it will, w that they don't want government in their bedroom.yes, it will, know that they don't want government in their bedroom. and mitt romney will sign a total ban on abortion if september to his desk. so there's a real gulf between the republicans and the democrats for women. . >> on the flip side, blit company said the one they don't want to see in terms of which biden shows up is the one prone to veer off message badly, freelance or talk out of his hat. they also quoted democratic aides who compared the vice president to cracker jacks. you never know what prize you'll get when you open the box. which one will show up, what do you think? >> vice president biden will show up with the clear voice he's always been. because he articula
's not a question about electoral process. it's about role of government. >> fact checking departments all over this. you know "the new york times," washington post "the daily rundown." >> is that getting to the local media. >> that's not the fault of the media if the voters aren't hearing it. i mean the stuff is in there. "the new york times" is covering it. "the washington post" is covering it, "time" magazine had a cover story on what's up with facts these days in political races and a good story that had a lot of considering debunking of like what's happening. it's not that it's -- we aren't talking abo ing about it, why a voters reacting the way they should. >> we will talk about how voters are reacting to the latest romney high jinx, the ride on the romney carousel after the break. brought to you by the letter "r" while governor romney fires back at team obama over the latest attack ads featuring big bird jimmy fallon conjures memories of another show, mr. romney's neighborhood. >> hello, neighbor. you see this? it's called a wallet. inside of a wallet, that's where money goes. now, do you kno
the occasional faults of a government that lives in a spirit of charity than a government frozen in the ice of its own indifference. i just feel like we're letting ourselves e get frozen in our own indifference because no one takes on the demonizing of the poor or defending programs for the poor that actually work. that's what the nuns on the bus are out there doing. >> e.j., let's go back to 2008 and the vice presidential debate where joe biden was up against sarah palin. everybody knew that she was information challenged and there was somewhat of a tight rope that joe biden was walking there. he didn't want to come out overbearing or disrespectful because that could have hurt the ticket with female voters in america. now it's totally different. isn't it? now joe biden who has kind of been held back by the administration is being nudged out there to say, go get him, joe. what do you make of this? >> i think joe biden is a better debater than president obama. i thought that back in 2008. i saw several debates where joe biden outdebated all of them on the stage. and so, yes, i think there's
governs, come to massachusetts and ask us. he raised fees by a billion dollars. he raised fees on hunters. there is this baby thing going on right now. we've heard him going after big bird. in massachusetts, he made it more expensive to be a baby. he increased the cost of berth certificates. so people need to understand, you can say anything when you're running, and he does, and he will. but how did he govern? in massachusetts he has less than a 30% favorability rating. and president obama is winning by over 20 people. the people in massachusetts have seen how he will govern, are not happy with their former govern. >> interesting. you went after romney in a debate over when exactly he left his position at bain capital, which has been an enormous part of this election. take a listen. >> the fact is you were still signing documents as ceo of the company while you were away. and as a matter of fact, in the summer of 2001, when you were leaving the olympics, you actually made a statement in the paper that in the summer of 2001, you were finally relinquishing 100% control of your position with
of government, and he shouldn't bristle at the question because this is what he believes. this is the core of his view. >> to that point, ari, how do you think this individual, this paul ryan, is going to manage himself in the debate against mr. joe biden? >> that's the question and it goes to something you said earlier in the show, which is a lot of the answers that are tough and scary when you look at the real repercussions of the ryan budget, a lot of the answers are ideas that basically this campaign wants to push until after the election. i'm a little reminded of the villain in the new "batman" who says now is not the time for fear. that comes later. and that's the problem, and i think you're going to see joe biden come out and explain exactly what it means to cut a third out of medicaid, which is for elderly middle class families and, by the way, a lot of what medicaid goes to is families who have a child with disabilities and who wouldn't be near the poverty line but for that child. you want to cut that program? we have to talk about what that means for american families. >> but i t
government can't make a distingsion on race it can do so in school admissions because getting a racially diverse campus provides a better education. that was the court's holding. after the argument today it seems clear the court is not going to go and overrule that precedent but the problem many of the justices had is how do you know when you have enough diversity. the university of texas has an unusual system. it automatically admits anybody who graduates in the top 10% academically of any high school in texas. that gets a fair amount of diversity on campus because many of those schools tend to be racially more uniform, predominantly black or hispanic and tend to get diversity. the problem for perhaps the majority of the justices how do you know when there's enough diversity. what the school says is, we don't want merely diversity in numbers. we want african-american students who are interested in fencing and speaking greek and studying architecture and hispanic students who are great fencers or ballet dancers. we want diversity in other words within the mere racial numbers. and i think
category. >> true. but most people think that a government that's at a record size as a percentage of compete, the government that has doubled in spending in the last ten years, and one that's going to continue to grow that somehow that's a draconian cut in spending i don't think people are going to buy it. the other important point that paul ryan's going to want to make, we've got a serious fiscal problem on hour hands. some people in washington pretend not to notice that but trillion dollar deficits year in and year out, debt that has reached 100% of total economic output this is unsustainable. paul ryan put a plan on the table. you don't have to necessarily agree with every last element in there t. but acknowledge it is a thoughtful, thorough, comprehensive plan that gets our economy growing and puts on a path to balance. where's the president's plan? his plan is so unserious not a single democrat in either the house or the senate voted for it when it was on the for in. >> why did mitt romney run away from the paul ryan budget plan? >> mitt romney put paul ryan on the ticket. th
is asking for a new fire truck, if a twin is the asking for help with a government grant or something like that, they'll put their name on it. i think that's what he was trying to defend on it. >> come on, come on, let me in here, please. >> go ahead, go ahead. do i have a choice at this point? you're like joe biden. >> that's right. you know what, when you're passionate and you're right you've got to talk. i'm like joe in that respect. what you just heard was the biggest line of bull we heard from the republicans behind me. >> you obviously never worked on the hill, my friend. >> i worked on the hill for five years. >> a good elected official knows what their staff is up to. somebody who wants to be vice president of the united states, if his best explanation is, i guess my staff did it or better yet if he said, we always try to get money for our state except when i go out and argue against the money for my state. he was caught. he was speaking for the entire republican party at that moment. because these are guys in the republican party who want what they want from the government and the
, to your point, they were who they always have been, even in governing. barack obama has infuriated his own base because of this perception that he doesn't fight hard enough. >> recurrent theme. >> it's a recurrent theme. with mitt romney the recurrent theme among republicans, the reason he doesn't have a lot of frentsds in his party is the idea that he's a vicious debater. newt gingrich called him a liar in which he demolished supposedly the best debater in the republican party and he is known to be a flip-flopper. what did he do in that debate, he flip-flopped. everybody played the type. >> dedrick's point is smart about mitt romney in some ways was the beneficiary of lowered expectations and the beneficiary of the success of the obama campaign as painting him as a character of a ba foonish budocrat. by the time john kerry took the debate stage the bush campaign had done such a good job of making him look like a ridiculous figure and then he came out and it was like, oh, right, this is a smart, competent individual who spent his life in the united states senate. it was the same thing with
when it comes time to actually govern. who's empowered in the house republican caucus who's calling the shots. who's empowered in mitch mcconnell and who's empowered in the world on conservative wonke wonkery. it is which political coalition you trust than what numbers are showing up. >> ryan was speaking to a constituency that doesn't really exist. the people who are never going to grow old, never going to be vulnerable. it's what mitt romney was saying. if you're over 55, don't listen. >> stop listening, yeah. >> and ryan was saying, for the old people who we've already made a contract with, that old contract is in place, but we've got a new one for people who are never going to need anything, are never -- shall never going to be vulnerable in the way that people who are already old are. but those people aren't -- >> they're not a different kind of person, they're just in a different stage in the life cycle. >> those people know it too. >> there's a consistent problem with republicans addressing issues of spending. they're two things that they do have to address. both of those it'
has a conspiracy theory. why would i think that? >> government. not sure which one but it's a government ploy somewhere. keep the kids out of the water. good morning, everyone. we have active weather that's going to happen. thunderstorms pushing through the nashville area and tennessee. a weak storm with cold, chilly rain. this is the beginning of an active weather pattern. if you are in the middle of the country, new thunderstorms popping up here. areas of new mexico. after a quiet first two weeks of october, we are going to have the first weather event starting tomorrow. here is a look at the storms as they push through the area. light rain now. they are racing through central portions of tennessee. the drive on interstate 40 is the worst drive in the country with the storms crossing the interstate as we speak. near springfield, missouri, a lot of lightning strikes. near the springfield area, i'm sure that interstate is not fun, either. isolated strong storms, an area of yellow. it's tomorrow that the storm heads out to the central plains. minisevere weatherout break, po
